Association of Student Medical Assistants
The Association of Student Medical Assistants is designed for current medical assisting students as well as pre- medical assisting students. The Association’s goals are to educate the public to the expanding field of medical assisting, to continually improve the program, to explore better student learning methods, and to develop a community service project for each freshman group.
The Mayland Astronomy Club is a student led community, that is also open to the general public, and is dedicated to providing a safe non-discriminating environment for the advancement of astronomy and closely related branches of science. Club meetings will take place at the Earth to Sky Park in September, November, February, and April. The club will not meet during the summer months because students will not be on campus. Each meeting will be themed and present information on a different astronomical topic. Following the meeting, members will have the opportunity to participate in a members-only viewing at the Bare Dark Sky Observatory.
Club fees are waived for current Mayland curriculum students, and only those members can serve as officers. All other members will pay either $30.00/year for an Individual Membership or $100.00/year for a Family Membership. A family membership includes immediate family members or grandparents with grandchildren. Members will also receive a discounted ticket price for special speakers at the Earth to Sky Park. Members will be issued a Mayland Astronomy Club membership card that they will need to show at each meeting and to receive discounted speaker tickets. Members do not receive discounts on community viewing night tickets or private rentals. To become a member or if you have questions about the club please email firstname.lastname@example.org

The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS)
The NSLS is an organization that helps people discover and achieve their goals. The NSLS offers life-changing lectures from the nation’s leading presenters and a community where like-minded, success-oriented individuals come together and help one another succeed. The NSLS also serves as a powerful force of good in the greater community by encouraging and organizing action to better the world.
The guiding question we established to shape all the important decisions the organization makes is: “Are we helping the greatest number of people in the greatest way?” When asked how he might sum up the key thing that the NSLS does, founder Gary Tuerack shared, “We are the dream supporters- we build leaders, support people in achieving their dreams, and better the world in the process. We get people to ask the all-important question, ‘What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?’ and then help them achieve those goals.”
NSLS has a degree seeking, GPA, and credit hour requirements. Membership is by invitation.
Student Government Association (MCCSGA)
MCCSGA is the official voice of the student body. As such, it not only represents the students but also works with MCCSGA advisors to provide social, educational, cultural, recreational, and service activities for the school and the community. The MCCSGA President is also an ex-officio member of the college’s Board of Trustees. Any interested student or staff member is invited to attend meetings and to participate in the planning of activities. Voting privileges are reserved for officers and senators.
MCCSGA officers are elected from the student body, while senators are recruited from the student body and required from each student organization. Responsibilities and powers of the MCCSGA are those specified in its constitution and approved by the College’s Board of Trustees. Copies of the MCCSGA Constitution can be obtained from the Dean of Students or the College’s website at https://www.mayland.edu/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2019/07/Mayland-Student-Government-Constitution.pdf.
